COLLECTING INFO
Rarity in the UK 2/10 Guideline Price 3. allow about 3 to ship to
UK also and possible customs charges). although you should find
one in the UK with a little patience, around the 2.50 mark and
1.50 postage. At this point Philips began more intensily on
arcade type conversion games, I'm not sure this was released
with a cardboard cover. Freedom fighters did benefit from a
makeover from the Videopac+ series, and is one of the more
readily available + titles. I happened upon the prototype/demo
pictured below, initially labelled defenders, but seemingly
changed by a past owner to reflect the release number and title
PLAYING INFO
Unsurprisingly based on the very popular arcade game
"defender" of the time, however this is set in freespace and
you men that you rescue float around in square capsules, this
is a fast addictive scrolling game, with plenty of life in it, well
worth a blast. TIP: Start off in any mode and move your ship
to any of the corners, quickly switch to hyper drive with the
ship facing the opposite side of the screen, then no pulsarships
or drones will attack from the back and since your ship is on
one of the far sides of the screen you will have more time to
aim at the mines and pulsar ships. (Steve Routolo, Cincinnati,
Ohio, Odyssey Adventure summer 1983)
